Unhappy with the border

I had picked out two fabrics for the borders on the labyrinth quilt.  After I attached the narrow paisley border I decided I didn't like the pumpkin with the quilt.  The colors are just a little off...too green/yellow or something.  I don't know if it will show up well in the pics.  So I moved the pumpkin fabric to the back of the quilt. 
Now I am left with a narrow border only.  I have marked the quilt and almost loaded it onto the frame, but I am not happy.  I think I will go shopping for another border fabric.

UFO String Quilt

It took 3 days to do the binding on this donation quilt. I wouldn't have finished it tonight, but a friend called and when I told her that I had today off she asked me if I had done any sewing. No, I had been procrastinating because I had to rip out some of the binding and redo it. I got up and finished it in 30 mins.
Another thing I have been doing today, was playing Bejeweled sister and nephew had outscored me and I spent a good part of the day trying to beat their scores. I need to be as competitive with myself to finish projects!

Christmas photos

On Christmas Eve day I saw Brandon, Natalie, and Tiffany

On Dec 30, 2010 Brandon and I drove to Memphis and had New Years Eve Dinner with Paul, Melynda, Stefan, Danielle, Kearstyn, and Loralie.  I neglected to get a picture of Stefan
